The British government, over several years, has already destroyed the papers, without scanning them, of those belonging to the #Windrush generation, quietly deporting them, depriving them of their rights as British citizens. /2
2/ Since the #EUreferendum, it has enabled an environment so hostile that no few blink when an MP is murdered in the street, where #EU27 citizens have been spat on and beaten up in public, and where @the3million are forced to *apply* to remain in their own homes. /3
3/ The right wing has seized on this moment, carefully recruiting the violent and vulnerable to make them feel important, enabled, and politically capable, placing them where they can disrupt emergency services and abuse public figures without immediate action from the police./4

1/ No Madam you are wrong. This goes to the heart of & undermines the very essence of what it means to be #British. Our sense of #fairplay , playing by the rules, and above all to our model of #democracy based on free & fair elections. #FBPE #CambridgeAnalytics #BrexitGate
2/ If we ignore this blatant cheating & interference by a foreign power in the British Democratic process then we throw away all that is best about Britain, our history. #FBPE #CambridgeAnalytics #BrexitGate #BrexitWhistleblower #PMQs
3/ If we ignore this election fixing & cheating we betray our ancestors, grandparents, great grandparents who sacrificed & gave so much to preserve our democracy & way of life. #FBPE #CambridgeAnalytics #BrexitGate #BrexitWhistleblower #PMQs #Brexit #EUReferendum
